Let God be true (because people lie)

Just curious...

Which carries more weight with you: what people say, or what God says?

Ever hear people say something like this?

"We are human beings, not human doings. Stop doing, focus on being. God loves you as you are. He's not going to judge you by your deeds because you belong to Him now. Trying to please God is legalism. He just loves you as you are, the way you are!"

Sounds really nice, doesn't it?

I get a warm, fuzzy feeling just contemplating it.

Then I wake up from that daydream and realize it's rubbish.

But I hear it about ten times a day from people who either don't know (or don't care to know) what God actually says.

For example:

"We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad" (2 Cor. 5:10).

So much for popular opinion.

God says...

1. All of us (this was written to believers) must appear before the judgment seat of Christ.

2. We're going to be held accountable for what we DO, whether good or bad.

So, the way I see it, we have two options...

1. Listen to the opinions of people who don't know what they are talking about (and suffer the consequences), or

2. Listen to God's Word, get wisdom, and be rewarded.

This is just one example of God's Word contradicting popular opinion when it comes to judgment, works, punishments and rewards.

We'll cover many more in the epic conclusion to our teaching series on RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT happening this week.
